For economically disadvantaged families, caring for the elderly - which includes medical bills, clothing and food - is an extra burden they usually cannot afford. To prevent aged women from experiencing neglect and deprivation in the last phase of their lives, Vizhuthukal Trust are trying to provide groceries and clothes to about 2,500 of them on a regular basis so they have something to rely on.WHY TIRUNELVELI
The poorer communities of Tirunelveli mostly work as daily-wage agricultural labourers, with an unreliable income. There are a few thousand senior citizens in the target villages, some living with their families, and many living alone with no one to care for them. As the aged are no longer fit enough to be agricultural labourers, those able to work end up doing menial jobs that cannot support their basic needs.THE PLAN
Vizhuthukal Trust will identify 50 elderly women in need of support. Once the Fundraiser closes, they will purchase sarees and blouses, rice, vegetables and other kitchen staples and distribute it to the women - some who live alone, and some with their families.
Thanks to your contribution ₹13,803 was raised, enough to provide rice, groceries, vegetables and clothes to 12 elderly women who belong to a lower caste and are often subjugated to discrimination. They are from a low income background and are too old to earn a living, your donation has been of great help to them.
